A web-based Git repository management and code review service.
Gerrit is a an open source, self-hosted service for Git repositories that features repository browsing, code review, and extensibility through plugins.
Review Board integrates with Gerrit, letting you review changes against your Git repositories using our advanced review capabilities like issue tracking for comments, moved code detection, file attachment review, multi-line commenting, and more.
Gerrit support requires the use of our Review Board plugin, offering additional API that Review Board can use.
Today, RBTools makes it simple to post code reviews against Gerrit right from your command prompt, like so:
$ rbt post Validating commits... Uploading commits... Review request #2 posted. https://reviewboard/r/2/ https://reviewboard/r/2/diff/
Made some changes to your code, and want to update your review request? That's as simple as running:
$ rbt post -u Validating commits... Uploading commits... Review request #2 posted. https://reviewboard/r/2/ https://reviewboard/r/2/diff/
We have a whole guide on best practices with Git that goes over all the ways you can make Git and RBTools work for you.
To get started, download Review Board and RBTools. Once installed, follow our documentation on configuring Gerrit repositories and posting changes for review.
